MP could face reprimand from parliamentary authorities over use of Commons headed notepaper!

Imelda Marcos and her shoe collection

According to a report that appeared in the Daily Express on Tuesday, Angela Rayner, the Member of Parliament for Ashton-under-Lyne, could be facing a reprimand for the use of commons headed notepaper to make a complaint to a shoe shop. The article claims, that like Imelda Marcos, wife of Philippine dictator President Ferdinand Marcos, Ms. Rayner, is an avid collector of shoes. We are publishing below the article that appeared in the William Hickey column:

"LABOUR MP Angela Rayner faces a reprimand from parliamentary authorities after using House of Commons headed notepaper to complain to a shoe shop that failed to reserve her a £195 pair of shoes with novelty four-inch Star War heels. She claims she ordered them in advance but when she called at the shop found they had sold out.

The MP for the Lancashire constituency of Ashton-under-Lyne, 35, wanted the shoes, which  boasts heels in the shape of Star Wars robot R2-D2, for an extensive collection which has earned her the nickname "Shoebacca".

Rayner a supporter of Jeremy Corbyn and recently promoted by him despite only being elected in May, should use commons notepaper only for official business.

A spokesman for the MP said: "There appears to have been a breakdown in communication between Angela and the shop, which is regrettable." What she means is she didn't expect to have to explain her actions in public.
